agree w/ most others here...4/8, 4/14, 4/24, 5/3, 5/11, and 5/26 are my personal faves.

5/3 just might have the best Other One of the tour, maybe better than 4/26??

The last show of the Europe 72 tour, and they pull out all the stops in the extra long show. The second set is great but what I really like is the jamming they put into the first set. The first set culminates with a smokin China Cat Sunflower>Rider, and as if that wouldn't have been enough the go into Not Fade Away>Goin down the Road Feelin Bad>Not Fade Away. And thats, like I said, only the first set.

Virtually every performance on the tour (perhaps with the exception of 4/21), has a compelling second set jam sequence and is essential listening. The very best performances are 4/8, 4/14, 4/24, 5/3, 5/7, 5/11 and 5/26. And 4/26, 5/4 and 5/10 are excellent as well. But every show on the tour deserves your attention.

I'd agree that 4/21 is about the only show on the tour that's non-essential (the TV studio setting may have stifled the Dead a bit...)
4/26 is one of the most essential in my view. Personally, I'd also put 5/25 as one of the TOP shows on the tour...the second-set jam we've had for a while was astounding enough, but when the longer Miller copy came out, the Good Lovin' and Playing in the Band just floored me. And we're still missing much of the second set!...one of the things I'm most looking forward to in the box set.

5/16/72 really blew my mind. I think it's a notch tighter than all the rest, and it's somewhat shorter which made it easier for me to digest.

Radio Lux is a bit different. I think the playing is just a touch faster than the other shows, and the high wattage of the broadcast gives it a rather unique sound and vibe. Though it's not as jammed out as the best shows of the tour, I agree that it might be the tightest performance of the tour. The first set in particular is excellent. I love Weirs lead guitar during the China/Rider transition and the blazing intro segment of The Other One might be the best of all time...

Google "torrent". (without the quotes)
Learn to do the torrent bit, and you have access to pretty much any show that your heart desires!!
